I think i have a strong workplace retaliation event..

Lawyer's Assistant: Was this retaliation issue discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

Manager and HR...

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the workplace "at will" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried?

At will, salary.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I dont think so...the employer is facebook and this sort of poor judgement behavior is rampent..

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
